I know that it hurts a LOT of people to think that the BEST parents in the world just lost their 1 and only child, but just think of it like this...god took him because he wanted somebody good! I geuss the saying "bad things happen to good people," is true because my aunt and unlce have never done anything wrong, they are both in the airforce and work as doctors helping people, and would help out somebody any time they needed help, and would never be rude to anybody, even if they didn't like them! I LOVE YOU, Aunt Dawn&Uncle Juan!

You are not forgotten loved one,
nor will you ever be
as long as life and memory last
we will remember thee
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
as time goes by we miss you more
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
no one can fill your vacant place.
"They are not lost who find
the light of sun and stars
and God"

Dear Stacilee, I am so very sorry to read of the loss of your precious little 2 year old nephew, Juanito. :( Take it from one who has been there ... There are no words to describe the kind of grief parents experience when they lose a child. And, though we would like to, we cannot take their pain away! :( As you have stated in your post at our prayer Bereaved parents who have lost a child ... It's not fair! And, no, we will never understand why bad things happen to good people ... Especially a precious little child. We know that a child, no matter what issues are involved, has not, could not have done anything to deserve dying. :( So, there has to be some other reason why this thing has happened. In my opinion, there will never be an answer that parents can accept, and like say, "OK God, now I understand." Why? Because a parent's love for their child/children is so strong that they would literally give their own life to save the life of their child, or in some cases, children. There is no greater love bond than that of a parent/child. So, the question of why will never be fully understood or answered in this world, because there is no answer that would be good enough for that child's parent, or other family members who love that child more than life itself! :)

////////////////////////PART 2/////////////
Right now, both your sister and her husband or in a state of shock, denial, and disbelief. Their pain will eventually come out as anger, and they may even reach a point where they will question the very existence of loving God. Right now, however, they must grieve their loss! There is literally no way around it! If the death was sudden or unexpected, they will have to deal with that aspect of grief ... Some parent's have the additional burden of not having the chance to say good-bye. Others, have had the added burden of knowing in advance, but felt helpless because they were unable to prevent the child from dying. Eventually, as the shock begins to wear off, it is replaced with pure pain which shows up as anger. Anger at God, anger at the world that didn't stop when their world stopped. Added to this is the feelings of self blame or the feeling that somehow, or somewhere along life's journey there must have been something that you said or did, to cause God to punish you by taking your child. Keep in mind there is no planned order for these things which I speak of to happen.

///PART 3///////
There will be times when a parent will experience all or most of these things at the same time! :( Most grief counselor agree that it is the shock stage of grieving that prevents parents from losing it all together when they lose a child. Stacilee, I could say more, but it is still quite painful for me to type. I will, God willing, share more as time goes by. My advice to you, as you deal with your own grief, is to just be there for your sister and her husband. Let them know how shattered your heart is and that you care deeply about their loss, for their loss is your loss, too! And, tell them that even though what you are feeling cannot be compared to what they are feeling, The heartfelt grief you are feeling is unlike any you have ever known! If your sister needs you to just listen, or if she indicates she needs to talk about what happened, just listen and let her know that whatever she is feeling is completely normal for a parent who has just lost her precious child to feel. Tell her about our prayer circle, and that a lot of Angel Moms are storming heaven with prayer for both her and husband and you, and the rest of your family and friends!

///PART 4////
Please let this Angel Mom know that she is not, and will never be alone in her loss... And in time, we hope that she will come to our circle of love and visit, even if she only reads to learn how other angel moms have dealt with their own grief, and are learning to live with our pain and loss. Tell her also that even though he may express it differently ... Her husband's pain over losing their son is just as great as her own, although he may try to hide that from her, in order to be strong for her. This is very important to the healing process that she knows this very early on. Many marriages suffer after losing a precious child... Many marriages do not survive this kind of loss!
///PART 5///
Also, when she is ready to deal with it, joining a support group with other moms who have lost a young child will also help her during these early stages of grieving. It cannot be rushed. Tell her she must pamper herself and do whatever works for her at any given moment in the day or night. More later ... I pray that this will help get you and family started on your endless grief journey. May it help to know that others care and that you are not alone. I pray that God will keep His loving arms around you, Juanito's parents, and your entire family. Juanito is alive and well and has now become a guardian angel for his beloved parents and family. Thanks to our Lord and Savior, each of you will see your precious little Juanito again when it is your time to go back to heaven. I pray that God will comfort each of you and keep you in His loving care.
Much love and prayers,

Stacilee, ~ You are a Support Angel yourself for informing us of your sister's and her husband's loss. Thank you also for your beautiful prayer for all angel moms. We angel moms are always grateful when others post their prayers and/or prayer request at our circle of love. :) We welcome a post from you anytime you feel like it. It will help us moms to better understand how helpless others sometime feel when faced with reaching out to friends or loved ones who have lost a precious and beloved child, or in some cases, children.
God's peace and blessings,
